You're in an all-girl band,
Your futon's second-hand,
Your parents understand but you don't care.
I have a job in a shop,
I'm an undercover cop,
I make sure the customers aren't thieves.

Old at being young, young at being old,
Everything's on hold within our evolution

You're my alternative girlfriend.
I love you and now you cannot pretend.
There's nothing left that won't cross over

Last night we slept on the lawn,
